I got this experience as a birthday present for my husband and I was not sure what to expect. Our Pilot Nicola was awesome, the views were amazing and we felt like part of the team setting up the hot air balloon! It was so much better than i expected and we would definitely do this again. The food was great and the restaurant had beautiful views as well. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone! Our landing was seamless thanks to Nicola's skill and precision, we were slowly floating down and then we had landed! Amazing!

I took my mum on a balloon ride for Christmas and we had an amazing experience. Yoshi, our pilot, was wonderful -- such a nice and funny person! The ground team were excellent too. It was a very welcoming environment. Floating above the clouds is one of the most serene and beautiful experiences there is! Those guys have amazing jobs. Highly recommend this company!

We had a fabulous morning in the Hunter with Balloon Aloft. Yosh is a very good pilot and guide. The team are very professional but down to earth and looked after everyone. The breakfast was also good and we enjoyed the rest of the day in the Hunter Valley as well. Highly recommended...
